Plans for Des Moines luxury hotel going forward

Pac, Hwy, hotel backed by Chinese investors

Press release:

The City of Des Moines is pleased to announce that permit applications have now been received from Yareton Investment Fund for the luxury Artemis Hotel project to be built on Pacific Highway South.

The development is the result of a trip by former Mayor Bob Sheckler, who met investor contacts while on an outreach effort to China.

The project was slowed during this last year due to additional processing time taken by the federal agency USCIS to approve the Chinese investors’ application for EB-5 foreign investor visa designation.

The investor group has decided to move forward with the permitting process in anticipation of approval. The building will be almost 300,000 square feet and have 235 hotel rooms.

Plans include an authentic four-star Chinese restaurant of a quality and authenticity currently unavailable in the Puget Sound region, as well as an upscale spa and other high-end amenities.
